UK father/son basketball camp
Media release from the University of Kentucky.....
Men’s Basketball Announces Multiple Father/Son Camps
Camps to take place in June
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Due to its overwhelming popularity over the last few years, the University of Kentucky Men’s Basketball program is pleased to announce two separate sessions of the 2013 John Calipari Father & Son Camps.
The John Calipari Father & Son Camp Session 1 is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 7-8, while Session 2 is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 14-15 (Father’s Day weekend).
A limited number of spots are available for all camps and are based on a first-come, first-serve basis, with online registration (www.ukathletics.com/camps) recommended as the fastest and most efficient form of registering campers. All of the camps listed were SOLD OUT the last two summers, so early registration is encouraged to secure a spot.
Traditionally the most popular camp, the 2013 Father & Son Camp will be split into two separate summer sessions. These weekend camps offer a unique father/son bonding experience that only Kentucky Basketball can provide. This year’s father and son participants will be treated to instruction from the UK coaches and staff, along with current and former Wildcat players through detailed skill work and competitions in the best facilities in college basketball.
Father and son teams will compete with fellow campers of appropriate age groups (based on son’s age/grade level) in competitions that incorporate skills learned throughout the camp. The skill work is designed to give both father and son drills and techniques to take home and continue working on together. This camp is open to all fathers and sons ages 6-17, regardless of previous basketball experience.
Once camp registration is complete, participants will receive a confirmation email, with details of necessary paper work needed (physical, insurance and consent), along with a list of items campers will need to bring for camp. Any camp related questions can be called into the Men’s Basketball camp line at 859-257-9457 or 859-257-1916.
